Coopersville man crashes pickup into semi

A Coopersville man was injured and one of his dogs went missing after he drove into the path of a semitrailer truck Monday afternoon, police said. Witnesses told police that Michael Mooney, 57, was driving east on Arthur Street when he ran a stop sign at the 48th Avenue intersection, said Ottawa County Sheriff's Sgt. John Wolffis. Mooney drove into the path of a semi pulling an empty livestock trailer, driven by 42-year-old Matthew Entrican of Caledonia. The vehicles collided and Mooney's 2007 Chevrolet pickup truck was thrown into the ditch.

Mooney sustained a head injury in the accident and was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, where he was in stable condition as of Monday afternoon, Wolffis said. Mooney was wearing a seat belt.

Entrican was not injured in the accident, Wolffis said.

At the time of the crash, Mooney had two dogs in his pickup. One was found at the scene and was severely injured.

The other dog, a black Labradoodle named Bo, was seen running east on Arthur Street, Wolffis said. The dog had not been found as of this morning.

Anyone who finds the dog should call Ottawa County Central Dispatch at 800-249-0911, Wolffis said.
